Very nice Brazilian music released a week ago at Jamendo! Camerata Brasileira plays the “Choro” (or “Chorinho”) which is a typical style of instrumental music from Brazil. You can read more about Choro here or visit some links at this wikipedia stub.

Camerata Brasileira

Don’t forget to visit their website! There is another album available to download. You can also buy their CDs here.

I leave you with Camerata Brasileira‘s description by Marcello Campos:

Improvisation, choro, swing, jazz, samba, electronic/techno, mutation, tradition, contemporary Brazil, music… just music.

The choro has already been a musical gender, a style, a way of performing… anyway, it has received a series of concepts (and misconcepts) which gave it faces and labels. For Camerata Brasileira, the choro is a celebration of life: more than technique or wisdom, it is knowledge and art, and so being it surpasses music and becomes part of our daily lives. If Camerata performs it in two or three parts, in the correct style, with the adequate structures, anyway… it doesn’t matter. Camerata does it only because it’s music, and that’s what these guys like to do, by an imperative biological or aesthetical need – who knows?

Camerata signs its creations with a personal touch, in which one can identify many of the contributions every one of them slowly brings into the whole. Sources? There are many of them… Maybe all of those cited in the beginning of this text.

Their nowadays repertoire includes pieces by Pixinguinha, Baden Powell, Hermeto Pascoal, Jacob do Bandolim, Sivuca, Heitor Villa-Lobos and Tom Jobim, besides their own pieces. But don’t be surprised if they come out with an unknown composer, a musical freak or a non-ortodox proposal, for their north is music… just music.
